Volkswagen Tire Life Expectancy and Replacements

There are a lot of important components on your Volkswagen vehicle, and some of the most important are the tires. The tires on your Volkswagen help provide a smoother ride and contribute to the overall efficiency and performance. And when you take care of them and give them routine maintenance, they can stay dependable and last a long time.

How Long Do Tires Last On a Volkswagen Vehicle?

Assuming that they have been properly cared for and haven’t been excessively driven on rough terrain, your Volkswagen model’s tires will last approximately 50,000 miles or about four years. If you don’t do a lot of driving, you can get more years on them, but should replace them when they reach 10 years old. By this time they will be more brittle and can cause a hazardous blowout while you are on the road.

Number of Cross-Country Road Trips With a Set of Volkswagen Tires

We are looking at trekking about 3,000 miles (give or take) to the Atlantic coast if we start our cross-country road trip in nearby San Francisco. If the tires on our Volkswagen are well cared for and as long as you don’t run over a nail, you could cross the United States 16 to 17 times before replacing them!
